At Red Orchid we are all about helping people and in doing so, sharing learning, solving problems and troubleshooting issues collaboratively along the way.

But, don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what other people say…

“I was totally blown away by James and his passion for shared learning based upon his experience of leading a fatal accident response team. As an experienced motivational speaker who has worked globally, I haven’t seen anything like it before. I genuinely connected with the important messaging because of his emotional and authentic delivery.”

Jason Anker MBE,
Chairman at Anker & Marsh

“I worked alongside James on a very complex matter that concerned extensive contractual claims and major related health and safety issues on a large engineering project.

He had to manage commercial claims issues and oversee contract negotiations that were critical to mitigating balance sheet exposure, whilst retaining oversight of multiple major incident workstreams.

In balancing the contractual/claims considerations alongside undertaking a rigorous health and safety investigation and competing stakeholder requirements, James demonstrated his resilience and capacity to troubleshoot issues as they emerged.

It would be difficult to conceive of a more difficult, complex or sensitive situation, but James handled himself with great integrity and professionalism throughout.”

Paul Barge,
Partner at Addleshaw Goddard

“James shared his experience of leading a fatal accident response team and his insight into the mental health impacts of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and management burnout. His frank, straightforward delivery on such an impactful matter was key to the success of the HS2 demolition conference that he spoke at. He changed the way that the teams’ approach high risk work.”

Christina Wallace,
Programme Manager at HS2 Ltd

“If you’re looking for a speaker, or workshop facilitator, who can bring into sharp focus the complex consequential impacts of a sudden unwelcome disruption to business as usual, or a major incident, I would highly recommend Red Orchid.

A unique and profoundly moving experience which provided a critical insight into the human, and organisational, impacts of a fatal accident.

Shared learning that translates across the entire spectrum of planning, preparing for, and performing in, crisis situations.

The skill to weave practical knowledge and experience of leading a fatal accident response team into our learning objectives, and planning exercises, was amazing. 

An absolute must see.”

Beverley Griffiths,
Emergency Management & Resilience Centre – University of Wolverhampton
